It’s only been one and a half months since we last posted an R5 movie release dates update on this blog. However here we are, writing yet another article on the same topic, only a couple of weeks later. This is due to the volatile nature of DVD release dates – movie publishers tend to change these frequently and hence the need for frequent updates and corrections. Listed below are DVD (region 5) release dates for highly anticipated English movie titles due to be released this year. Wondering why knowing the release date of a movie DVD is important? With that knowledge, you can pretty much guess when a watchable leaked copy of that particular movie will appear online, on file sharing networks and other similar sites. R5 DVD release dates of major movie titles that recently premiered and of those due to be premiered this year are listed below:

Please keep in mind that these dates are subject to frequent change (you can compare revised dates with our previous list and see how much has changed during this short period of time). Additionally, note that some of the movies mentioned below have R1 DVD and Blu Ray versions already released or leaked online.

The R5 DVD Format – Background information:

The R5 format was first introduced to minimize DVD movie piracy in areas such as Russia, Indian subcontinent and Africa. These DVDs are usually released ahead of other regions and are cheaper than their R1/R2 counterparts (in an attempt to convert would-be pirates). However, scene/P2P groups too use this to their advantage by making releases combining video ripped from R5 DVDs (which have near DVDRip quality) and English audio from CAM/TS sources. A R5 is the next best thing for BitTorrent downloaders unless a DVDRip, BRRip or a true HD copy of the movie is already available.
